    Roses

    • Organically grown rose petals, especially non-white ones, are high in polyphenols, which act as an antioxidant to help prevent cardiovascular disease and cancer.

    Marigolds

    • Orange-colored marigolds contain lycopene (the same substance found in tomatoes), which helps fight cancer. Yellow marigolds have lutein, a nutrient beneficial to the eyes.

    Daylilies

    • Daylilies have vitamin B, which builds your energy, helps grow hair and nails, and promotes healthy digestion.

    Violets

    • If you have a problem with fragile capillaries or poor blood circulation, the rutin herb in violets can ease the problem. Rutin is also helps reduce the appearance of varicose veins and hemorrhoids.

    Squash Blossoms

    • Squash blossoms from the zucchini plant contain vitamin A carenoids (also called beta carotene). The carenoids boost the immune system and help improve vision.

    Warning

    • Don't eat store-bought flowers; they are treated with harmful chemicals. Use flowers you have grown in your own garden.
